I have a problem where the graph of the equation is below the x axis at x=0, crosses the x axis at x=2, and is above at x=5. To find the area of this would I just split the interval into two parts, find both areas, and then add them? Or would I simply ignore the part of the graph that is below the x axis? "Bounded by the x axis" confuses me and that is why I am unsure.
